Junior Doctor Who and the Brain of Morbius was a 1980 children's adaptation of the novelisation Doctor Who and the Brain of Morbius.

Novelisation[edit | edit source]

  • This novelisation is based on the original television serial TV: The Brain of Morbius, written by Robin Bland (aka Terrance Dicks) and shown from 3 January 1976.
  • This the second of two "junior" novelisations written by Dicks. They were essentially rewrites of previously published novelisations -- in this case, Dicks' own Doctor Who and the Brain of Morbius -- but aimed at younger readers. Only one other book of this type was attempted: Junior Doctor Who and the Giant Robot.
  • The interior cover title is Doctor Who and the Brain of Morbius: A Junior Doctor Who Book.
  • Cover illustrator: Harry Hants
  • There was also a version with the white cover being blue instead. The logo became The 1980's logo, or also known as the chrome logo and the text was smaller white. A 80's target logo was also inserted at the top right.
